The Chef's Table

I arrived an hour early and was surprised to see an empty parking area. I grabbed the closest spot to unload my equipment. Inside I met Rich Herzfeld, the owner, and we discussed logistics. His biggest concern was I be sure not to play too loud.. and that a good way to check was if folks were sitting near me or not. 

I noticed the place was pretty empty as I began my set up. Then I chowed down some excellent breakfast food, and began tuning up.   Soon I detected a lot of activity around me.

Whole Foods Market

Saturday, May 25th, was a delightful day playing fun tunes from the 70's on.. with some of the nicest folks in Fairfield County, down at the Westport Whole Foods Market eating area. Playing my usual list of tunes by the Beatles, James Taylor, Jackson Brown, John Denver, and others from that time, I found myself engaging much of the time with my ever changing audience. Having been a natural food fan for many years, and native to this part of CT, I am most at home in a  health food store setting, I will admit. Much of the time, families with baby carriages and youngsters, who were pretty well behaved I gotta say, were mingling around food tables with the rest of the family, enjoying salad bar fare and other scrumptious morsels from this marvelous store, as I got to play and sing songs that were right from my heart. The biggest lesson I learned this day was the dynamic of good communicating with my listeners. And for that I am very grateful.
